Shaadisthan Movie Review: Story & Performances:

"Shaadisthan" marks the directorial debut of Raj Singh Chaudhary, known for his work as a writer in movies like "Gulaal" and "No Smoking" starring John Abraham.

The story revolves around Sasha (Kirti Kulhari), an independent and free-spirited musician, and her team who are on their way to perform at a wedding in Ajmer. Due to unfortunate circumstances, a family that was supposed to attend the same wedding misses their flight and ends up sharing the musicians' bus to reach the wedding on time. The family consists of a young girl named Arshi (Medha Shankar), her father Sanjay (Rajan Modi), and her mother Kamla (Nivedita Bhattacharya).

The clash of generations and ideologies is a recurring theme in Bollywood movies, and "Shaadisthan" presents it in a fresh and nuanced way. The clash between Sasha's independent and unconventional lifestyle and Kamla's concern for society's judgment is one of the movie's highlights. Arshi's parents want her to get married soon after she turns 18, but she wishes to pursue her dreams instead.

The conversations between Kirti Kulhari and Nivedita Bhattacharya are the most beautiful and compelling parts of the movie. Kirti Kulhari's brilliant performance in the recent web series "Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors" has garnered critical acclaim, and she is undoubtedly the standout performer in "Shaadisthan." Nivedita Bhattacharya deserves credit for her portrayal of a character who feels so authentic and relatable. Medha Shankar and Rajan Modi also deliver commendable performances, and Kay Kay Menon makes a convincing cameo appearance.

"Shaadisthan" features some real-life musicians in supporting roles, including Ajay Jayanthi, a champion violin player, and Apurv Dogra, a well-known hip-hop artist. Sahil Bhatia's background score and Nakul Sharma's music add to the movie's overall appeal.

"Shaadisthan" is a movie that raises awareness about women's empowerment. However, the weak storytelling and slow execution may disappoint some viewers."
